Weekend Activities

Our weekend activities embrace the world both on and off campus. You’ll take advantage of our proximity to major cities like Philadelphia and New York, and we also value the richness of diversity that exists on campus. On a given weekend, there might be opportunities to explore mural arts in Philly, collaborate to build a raft, make empanadas, design a creation for a fashion show, or solve a mystery on a New York City scavenger hunt.

October 18–20, 2019: Parents Weekend and Fall Break.

This weekend there will be plenty of fall activities for students such as making caramel apples in Marshall, a Halloween tour of Lambertville, NJ, Shady Brook Farm’s HorrorFest, a hike in Tyler State Park, and a trip to NYC to enjoy food, shopping, and experience the Virtual Reality Museum. We also look forward to welcoming parents to campus for Parents Visiting Day!
